Halep said she "dominated a little bit more" against Wang than in her previous match, in which she lost the first set against world number 165 Caroline Dolehide, a 19-year-old American.
Indian Wells: World No.1 Simona Halep sailed into the women's singles' quarterfinals of the BNP Paribas Open here Tuesday breezing through her WTA Indian Wells fourth round match with a 7-5, 6-1 victory over China's Wang Qiang.
Halep is the only former Indian Wells victor left in the women's draw after World No.20 Daria Kasatkina upset World No.2 Caroline Wozniacki 6-4, 7-5.
"I love the way that they are motivated and they are still playing at this age, Serena with the kid", Halep said.
"I think she should have been actually number one seed in this tournament because she left as number one in the world". "So quite simple rule".

The suicide attacker for Mall Road blast was traced back to Afghanistan while an accomplice was nabbed. Ashraf said numerous wounded were police and three were hospitalized in critical condition.
Kasatkina improved to 11-6 on the WTA Tour season as she seeks to better her quarter-final appearance at Indian Wells in 2016.
Halep needed just 76 minutes on the main stadium court to dispatch Wang.
"I knew it would be like that because we practised a few days ago and she beat me in practice", Halep said.
"I stayed so many weeks off with injury and now coming back, so I was a little bit exhausted".
Kasatkina recorded her second straight win over Wozniacki, having also beaten the reigning Australian Open champ at the St. Petersburg tournament last month. The No.8 seed has yet to drop a set as she backed her first victory over Serena since 2014 with a 7-6 6-4 win over No.21 Anastasija Sevastova, bidding for sixth Top 10 win of career, who posted her best result here this year.

Although Halep's own performance was far from faultless, particularly in the first set, the Romanian triumphed 7-5 6-1 and will now face Petra Martic in the last eight.
Meanwhile, Williams survived a hard fourth round test to beat Sevastova just one day after beating sister Serena for the first time since 2014 in Montreal. I'm playing best matches against the best players.

Herbert moved on to a fourth-round matchup with Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany, who upset No. 2 seed Marin Cilic 6-4, 6-4.
Halep then served for the match, winning five of the final six points after the challenge.
